Having a queen bee is quite rewarding and somewhat helpful. It does, however, have a difficult taming process. Otherwise, having it will provide you with a beehive and honey. Also provides motivation to some who are in desperate times.
I make about 40-50 fishing poles (they're cheap) and fly around with an argy or wyv stealing honey from hives. Honey never goes bad in fishing poles and I take it out as needed. Then just fly away from the worker bees. Gilly is best if you have it.
